Storyline

In England in the 1920s, Emily, a maturing daughter of a once wealthy family arrives at their family estate to visit her mother for a couple of days. She wants to lose her virginity and there's more than enough opportunity for that. Her attractive lonely older mother is having a secret sexual relationship with a smug lusty older rich man who pays for her debts in return. He has his eye on Emily too. Their next door neighbor is a beautiful married middle-aged artist who offers Emily to pose for her. Emily is intrigued by the woman and a mutual erotic seduction between the two begins. However, in Emily's mind this is just a friendly exploration between two girls and doesn't count as losing one's virginity. Another candidate for that task is a young adventurous American about the same age as her who's visiting the old country. The maid has a lover as well, a soldier, who also wouldn't mind helping Emily with her quest. She eventually realizes how much lust these people hide in them and ... Written by Anonymous

Not a perfect film but it has its beautiful moments
17 January 2002 | by filmboy-1See all my reviews

It has been many years since I've seen this film, but what I remember is that is deals with Emily's sexual awakening to womanhood. I would recommend seeing the uncensored version since the video I saw trimmed off most of the steamier scenes. The shower scene between Emily (Koo Stark) and Augustine (Ina Skriver) is beautiful and sensual and makes up for the film's shortcomings.
